kitoshizc,
The page says that you should be able to copy from the NTFS partition.
I'll look for others for you though.

It says you can copy from NTFS to FAT12, FAT16, or FAT32.
The link to the download is here:(Use the "readntfs.exe" command in the zipped archive)
http://download.com.com/3000-2094-10225436.html

Or you can try this product. (Read the English portions of the page)

Hope this helps!

The link I provided you is a free download, and the downloaded version will allow you to copy from NTFS to FAT12, Fat16, or FAT32, or to a network share.
